Description

Scottish Enterprise and Dumfries and Galloway Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a ‘Selling your Business’ workshop exploring succession options including employee ownership on 7th November in Dumfries.

Have you considered a succession plan for your business? It’s never too early to start thinking about your options. Employee ownership is fast becoming the preferred exit route for business owners.


Aimed at business owners considering an exit from their company, this session will give attendees the opportunity to hear research and strategy consultants Optimat and care at home provider Stewartry Care explain what they considered in choosing employee ownership and how things have worked.


“I am very pleased to see this positive, forward looking change in the ownership of Optimat and am confident it will enable the company to continue its success and to thrive and grow in the future.” Angus Hunter, Founder and Managing Director


“We have a successful business model that works well for us, which is evidenced by the fact we’ve just won the Scotland’s Care at Home Provider of the Year award at the Scottish Care Awards in Glasgow.” Debbie Cochrane, Stewartry Care
